ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Grabs Win No. 10 With Rushmore Rumble Triumph

RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 14, 2017)- Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is the first to double digit wins with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in 2017 with his 10th National Tour victory of the year coming at the half-mile Black Hills Speedway to open up the 2nd annual Rushmore Rumble.

"I tell you, we didn't really prepare for what the track went to. I missed it a little bit, and the rubber actually saved us. If there would have been a bigger cushion like there was in the Heats, we were more prepared for that but even then, there's no excuses. We got the win. Just had to get that wing back a little bit to straighten her out," said Hafertepe who picked up his 25th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory, and first at Black Hills Speedway.

Taking off from the pole of Friday's feature event, the Heidbreder Foundation No. 15h was not alone as Blake Hahn stalked the National Tour point's leader. Finding traffic within the first five laps, Hafertepe was able to build a comfortable advantage, but it would quickly vanish as traffic worked wheel to wheel. Allowing Hahn to build momentum, the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 shot to the lead twice though the first and second turns, but would not be able to hold point over Hafertepe.

Working Lap 11, Hahn again looked to set up the No. 15h, but a slower car would nearly end Blake's night as Hahn's right rear went skyward over Clint Anderson's. Able to roll on, the field would end up under red as Lany Reber flipped hard into the fence. All drivers are unharmed.

Bypassing the work area, Hahn restarted to Sam's back bumper with Hafertepe taking off. Into traffic again in a matter of laps, Hahn closed quickly but mechanical woes would finally strike; sending Blake into the Pits on Lap 16. Avoiding the caution, the runner-up spot fell into the hands of Aaron Reutzel.

Trailing by over three seconds, traffic again came into play as the center line began to form. Having to move out of the rubber to make moves around the back markers, Hafertepe came under fire with two laps to go. With a massive slide job in the third and fourth turn, Aaron took the point. Turning the car down the track, Sam found the grip and with it, held the race lead by inches.

On the pass in traffic, Sam explained, "Just getting through lapped traffic was tough and maybe I was being a little too careful. We have a great car and I didn't want to mess anything up but when I went in behind the No. 75, I got crossed up and that allowed Aaron to get by, but once we got back to the bottom, Aaron slipped up a little bit and thankfully I was able to get by and hold on to win."

Trying to work the No. 15h for the last lap pass, traffic put the wrench in Aaron's plan to win, with the advantage Hafertepe by 1.509 seconds. Aaron Reutzel in second was joined on the podium by Seth Bergman. Earning the FSR Radiator High Point Driver of the Night, Matt Covington grabbed fourth and was the final driver to lock into Saturday's feature event.

Coming from eighth, Skylar Gee filled out the top five with Harli White crossing sixth. Robbie Price from ninth was seventh with Wayne Johnson eighth from 13th. Johnny Herrera, with a brand new car, was the night CP-Carrillo Hard Charger, coming from 16th to ninth. Montana's David Hoiness completed the top-ten.

Night one of the second annual Rushmore Rumble saw 27 drivers on hand. Three Heat Races went to Matt Covington, Aaron Reutzel, and Harli White. The BMRS B-Main was topped by Kevin Ingle. One regional provisional was used by Lany Reber.

The Rushmore Rumble continues on Saturday, July 15 with the front gate opening at 5:00 P.M. and Hot Laps at 7:00 P.M. (MDT).

ASCS National Sprint Series



Wayne Johnson Sweeps The Lucas Oil ASCS Grizzly Nationals

BELGRADE, Mont. (July 8, 2017) Riding a wave of momentum into Saturday's finale of the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway, Oklahoma's Wayne Johnson completed the weekend sweep with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"I can't begin to tell you how much this team needed this weekend. Ever since we figured out what was wrong with our car, this thing is back to working like it should," said Johnson of his 50th career National Tour score.

Gridding the lineup fourth, Johnson nearly saw his night end in the first two turns as Kelly Miller shoved up the track. Able to recover and gain momentum, Johnson began picking his way toward the front as Aaron Reutzel and Giovanni Scelzi battled for the lead with the 15 year old of Californian taking the point on Lap 4.

Working past Reutzel on the fifth rotation for second, the caution displayed working Lap 7 for Chauncey Filler who spun to a stop off the fourth turn.

Back to green, Scelzi was in full command as the BDS Motorsports No. 1 pulled the field by a straightaway before hitting traffic at the race's mid-point. Closing the gap to just a few car lengths, Wayne watched and waited for the chance to make a move.

"Once we got into traffic, I just bided my time and watched to see what Gio was going to do. I knew he was going to be tough to pass," commented Johnson.

Caught behind the No. 37 of Trever Kirkland going into the third and fourth turn, Scelzi tried to roll the middle as Johnson shot the low side to make the battle three wide with the advantage to Wayne on Lap 17.

Asked about the race with Scelzi for the lead, Johnson replied, "I just have to say, what a hell of a racer. This only being his second night in that car, he did a great job. He just made a little mistake in traffic, and that was the only chance I had. The bottom was better there towards the end and our car was better on the long run, but hats off to my team. They're doing a heck of a job and like I said, the kid that run second, I think he's 15 years old, and I'm telling you, his name is going to be in this sport for a long time."

Able to use slower traffic to keep Scelzi at bay, Johnson crossed under the checkered flag with a 0.771 second advantage. Coming up from ninth, Blake Hahn put his Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 on the final podium step. After leading the first three laps, Aaron Reutzel held on to finish fourth with Matt Covington making the top-five.

Kelly Miller ended up sixth with Seth Bergman seventh. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. followed in eighth with Skylar Gee and Johnny Herrera filling in the top-ten.

A field of 33 returned for the second night of the Grizzly Nationals. Four Heats were topped by Blake Hahn, David Hoiness, Johnny Herrera, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. The night's B-Main went to Harli White. No provisional starts were used.

Up next of for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the Rushmore Rumble at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, S.D. on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15.

Wayne Johnson Tops Night One Of The Lucas Oil ASCS Grizzly Nationals

BELGRADE, Mont. (July 7, 2017) Figuring out an issue with his car going into the Brownfield Classic, Wayne Johnson's No. 2c has been stout ever since, and Friday night at Gallatin Speedway, the Oklahoma City native was the class of the field on night one of the second annual Grizzly Nationals; leading non-stop in Friday's feature event.

"Before that last caution, I felt like the right rear was going down because I started getting real tight through the middle, but my nephew Bud, he motioned to me to just move down and it was alright. After that, they were going to have to be really good to go by me on the outside," said Johnson who picked up his 49th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature win.

Johnson's first trip of the season to Victory Lane with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the stop on the front stretch was one the wily veteran will not forget, as he got the hang out with the 900lbs Grizzly Bear known as Adam.

"I'm not going to lie, I was nervous about standing next to a Grizzly Bear, but that was really neat," chuckled Wayne.
Taking the green from the pole of Friday's 25 lap preliminary feature event, Johnson was stalked from the start by California's Giovanni Scelzi. Going green from the fourth spot, the driver of the BDS Motorsports No. 1 took the fight for second three-wide to secure the view of Johnson's Outlaw Wings No. 2c going into the third turn.

Twin grooves through the third and fourth turns in the early laps, the bottom of one and two was the preferred path as the leaders found traffic by the sixth lap. Getting a run to the outside of Johnson off the fourth turn at one point, Scelzi showed a nose but Wayne was able to keep the top spot.

Asked if he was concerned about getting moved on a restart, Johnson replied, "Not at all. All those guys race pretty good. I did see Gio just one time off of four when I slipped up a little bit, and after that I just made up my mind they were going to have to pass me on the outside. I never saw Seth even though he was in the mix."

Caution working Lap 12, Skylar Gee climbed the left side tires of Bryan Brown while running fourth. Bringing the No. 38b to a stop, Gee rolled on but went to the work area. Skylar would come back to finish 12th.

Green until Lap 18 as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rolled to a stop with a flat tire, the restart was short lived as debris brought back the attempt, allowing the No. 15h to return to the track and eventually at 11th place finish.

Battling for second on the restart, Seth Bergman found the line under Scelzi as the 15 year old racers slipped up just enough to allow the No. 23 the pass as Johnson motored away before the caution flew once more with five laps to run.

With tire conservation in mind, Johnson was able to take his Hoosiers go the distance with Giovanni Scelzi ending up second as Seth Bergman's right rear shredded off the final turn. Aaron Reutzel moved by for third with Canada's Kelly Miller in tow. Keeping his foot in the throttle, Seth was able to salvage a fifth place finish.

Johnny Herrera moved from ninth to finish sixth with Matt Covington following from 11th. Harli White eighth was trailed by the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger, Blake Hahn, who advanced eight spots to finish ninth. Hahn also collected an extra $250 from Kirkness Roofing and Roger Cummings. Montana's David Hoiness filled out the top-ten.

The opening night of the Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway saw 34 drivers in attendance. Four Heat Races went to Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Kelly Miller, Giovanni Scelzi, and Harli White. The night's B-Main went to Blake Hahn. No provisional starts were used.

Action at the Gallatin Speedway continues on Saturday, July 8 with gates opening at 5:00 P.M. and racing at 7:00 P.M. (MDT).

"It's a huge deal to get the win here at Elma. We've been fighting some gremlins these past couple weeks. We were getting some good finishes and the car's been good, but we were just missing that little extra and finally dialed the thing in tonight," commented Roger who reveled the team had been tracking down a vibration through Dirt Cup and the opening night of the Brownfield that ended up being the U-Joint.

"This National Tour is no joke. There's a lot of good guys out here, so it feels really good to come out on top."

A complete restart after Harli White and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. came to a stop off the fourth turn, the next attempt was also scrubbed when Devin Madonia came to a rest entering the third turn. Taking the green the third time with Matt Covington rolling to his outside, Roger was able to fend off the charge of the A-Rock Material No. 95.

Building a lead over five seconds at one point, Crockett was smooth through traffic as Wayne Johnson gave chase in the Outlaw Wings No. 2c. Working on cutting Roger's advantage down, the lead was almost up for grabs on Lap 24 as Crockett got crossed up.

Asked about what happened, Roger replied, "That's a deal where you're pushing and pushing. I started getting the wing back and when I did, the car got tight so I started driving even harder, and just got into some dirty air and the car jumped out from underneath me. Luckily I was able to gather it up, but it was a scary moment for a second there."

Looking like the race was going to go the distance, the caution finally displayed on Lap 28 for Jay Cole who came to a rest off the fourth turn.
With lapped cars to his advantage, Roger was uncontested with his advantage at the line 1.901 seconds over Wayne Johnson.

A solid turnaround from Friday night, Wayne gave praise to his crew for getting the car figured out and rolling in the right direction. Johnny Herrera parked his No. 45x third for the second night in a row, after a multi lap battle with the No. 87 of Aaron Reutzel. Falling back to fifth in traffic just two laps before the caution, the restart saw something turn foul for Aaron, as 22nd starting Blake Hahn raced by for the fifth spot. Advancing 17 positions, Hahn was Saturday's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night.

Matt Covington ended up sixth with Jason Solwold also charging hard from 20th to seventh. Craig Dollansky was eighth with Seth Bergman coming from 18th to ninth. Coming from 21st, Skylar Gee came up to round out the evening's top-ten.

A field of 36 was on hand for the finale of the 3rd annual Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino and Resort. Four Heat Races went to Henry Van Dam, Seth Bergman, Wayne Johnson, Harli White, and Colton Heath. B-Mains were topped by Jay Cole and Seth Bergman. No Provisional starts were used.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series begins its turn back to the mid-west with the series next stop coming on at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. on Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8 for the second annual Grizzly Nationals. Both nights begin at 7:00 P.M. (MDT). More information can be found on the track's Facebook page.

Hafertepe Dominates Round Two Of The 2017 Dirt Cup At Skagit Speedway

ALGER, Wash. (June 23, 2017) What a difference 24-hours can make as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. went from being a lap down on Thursday at Skagit Speedway to Victory Lane on Friday with a run that was hotter than Seattle Coffee during Friday's 25 lap preliminary A-Feature in the 46th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino and Resort.

"Everybody knows, at least the guys that race with us, when it gets a little rough like that, our car doesn't normally do very good and I'm not as young as I used to be for that cowboy up," said Hafertepe on the subject of the overnight difference in his performance.

"The track being a little slicker for us, it got close to what we had last year on Saturday night. Steve's done a great job. To work as hard as he has, to get what we had tonight form what we started with, hats off to Steve."

Hafertepe's eighth win on the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the Texas native will roll off fourth in Saturday's $15,000 to win A-Feature.

Positioning his Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h on the pole through Friday's Heat/Qualifier format, Hafertepe shot to the point immediately with Roger Crockett in tow.

Keeping the field at bay through a pair of early race cautions, and a red flag involving Seth Bergman and Wayne Johnson, the restarts yield little opportunity for Crockett to attack. Pacing ahead of third running Travis Rilat early on, the No. 39c came under fire from Blake Hahn with the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 taking the show position as Hafertepe began approaching the back of the field.

Green from Lap 7 on, traffic did little to slow Hafertepe's run with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point's leader crossing 5.188 seconds ahead of Roger Crockett, but it's the driver of the No. 7n that will lead the field to the drop of the green on Saturday.

"We had a good start to last night, and starting second row tonight, we didn't have any of the cars from last night starting around us so I knew we were in good shape," commented Crockett.

On his prediction of the track for Saturday, Roger said, "I think it'll be a lot like tonight. It usually gets hard on tires later in the race, which is good, it makes you save your car, but we've got a lot of work to do to catch Sam."

Blake Hahn completed the podium in the Lucas Oil No. 52 with 10th starting Aaron Reutzel fourth.
The run by the No. 87 earned the outside of the front row for Saturday's A-Feature. Jason Solwold finished fifth from ninth with Travis Rilat in tow. Colton Heath seventh was trailed by Matt Covington from 14th. Skylar Gee was the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the night with a run from 17th to ninth. Austen Wheatley made up the top-ten.

The finale of the 46th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino and Resort on Saturday, June 24 will be preceded by a Fan Fest Party by the track's main entrance as well as the NSCHoF Charity Auction in the grandstands. Both begin at 1:00 P.M. (PDT).

Modifieds will join the lineup of classes with racing getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (PDT). For more information on the Skagit Speedway, log onto http://www.skagitspeedway.com.

Hafertepe Continues Lucas Oil ASCS Domination At Lawton Speedway

LAWTON, Okla. (June 14, 2017) Sam Hafertepe, Jr. continues to show no signs of slowing down as the Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h unmercifully dominated Wednesday's Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network Speedweek stop at the Lawton Speedway.

"This thing was awesome," said Sam of his seventh National Tour score of 2017. "I don't care if we win it by five seconds, or a tenth of a second, as long as we get the "W", that's all the really matters and when a car is as good as this, it's fun because you can take you time and be smooth rather than rip it too hard."

Referencing his 5.291 second advantage at the drop of the checkered flag, Hafertepe was challenged once during the 25 lap feature event with Justin Henderson leading the field through the first two turns, before slamming the wall off the fourth turn as Sam rolled by for the lead.

"I knew he [Henderson] was going to be running hard there to and stay ahead of us. I got a good run off turn-two on the top and just decided to drive in real hard on him and see how hard he'd run it, and he just went a little too hard and hit the wall. We've run here a lot and it usually goes away coming off of four so if I pressured him, that might happen but I didn't expect him to slam the wall like that," said Hafertepe of the opening lap battle.

Single file on a Lap 2 restart, the green was short lived with no laps completed. Having gone into the work area with a flat right rear, Justin Henderson made it back to competition with Wayne Johnson and Blake Hahn also having to work on their machines.

Green for four more rotations, the caution again blinked on for a pair of cars stopped atop the second turn. Slowed once more near the race's half way point, Hafertepe quickly put distance over the field on every restart.

Working traffic with less than 10 laps to run, the advantage for the No. 15h stated at roughly a straightaway as the race from third through fifth saw Josh Baughman, Jason Barney, and 18th starting Aaron Reutzel trade slide-jobs and three wide passes several times before Reutzel moved to the show position. Tracking down second running Alex Sewell, the closing laps advanced Aaron to the runner-up spot for the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night. Aaron also jumped from fifth in tour standings to third.
Side by side at the line, Josh Baughman edged Sewell for third as the pair made contact at the line with Alex tipping over to draw the red flag. With the leader taking the checkered flag, the race was official with the finish split between the four drivers who crossed and the running order on the white flag lap.
Channin Tankersley, with a fresh engine under the hood, moved up two spots to fifth with Jason Barney ending his night sixth. Coming from 14th, El Paso's John Carney II advanced to seventh with Johnny Herrera eighth. Matt Covington and Joe Wood, Jr. completed the top-ten.

The appearance of 41 drivers at the Lawton Speedway saw five Heat Races going to Jason McDougal, Dustin Morgan, Brad Queen, Alex Sewell, and Josh Baughman. The 40 plus car field brought about Qualifiers which were topped by Channin Tankersley, Wayne Johnson, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. A pair of B-Features went Skylar Gee and Aaron Reutzel. Three Provisionals were used by Harli White, Kyle Bellm, and Jared Sewell.
The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Networks rolls to Round 5 of the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek on Thursday, June 15 at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. Racing begins at 8:00 P.M. (CDT).

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Perfect At Lucas Oil ASCS Devil's Bowl Summer Nationals

MESQUITE, Texas (June 13, 2017) Four ASCS sanctioned visits to the Devil's Bowl Speedway in 2017, and just as many wins to show for it, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rebounded from a weekend of DNF finishes with a dominating performance in Round 3 of the 2017 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek, leading non-stop in the 44th Devil's Bowl Summer Nationals with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"We had to do some frame repair to this thing after I got on my lid on Friday night, but I've got to thank Triston Dycus. Whatever it takes to keep us going, he does what he has to do. He was supposed to race tonight, so I feel bad because I'm probably half the reason he didn't race, but you can't replace friends like that," said Hafertepe of his sixth National Tour victory of the season.
Career victory No. 5 for Sam Hafertepe, Jr. at the Devil's Bowl Speedway since 2011, Sam has eight overall ASCS wins on the 2017 season.

"I know what my car can do here. I feel like I've made a million laps here and it showed tonight, but my hats off to my crew. I know I chew their asses a lot, but I want them to be perfect. We try to be perfect every night, and they've busted hard the past two days, so this win is for them."
Running to a Heat Race win, the Hwy. 79 Collision No. 15h made the redraw with a runner-up starting spot for the A-Feature. Rolling green next to Dalton Stevens, the race into the first two turns when the way of Hafertepe.

With a nearly straightaway advantage built within the first five laps, the back of the field was already in view. Picking his way through slower traffic, the tiptoe moves seemed to do little to slow the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point's leader.

Slowed once on Lap 15 for Justin Henderson who came to a stop just off the top of the third turn with a broken Sway Bar, the lineup found a pair of lapped cars between Sam and second place, Aaron Reutzel.
Running away again at the drop of the green, Sam was uncontested with a nearly straightaway advantage at the drop of the checkered flag.

Racing for the runner-up spot on the closing lap, things got a little more than close between Dalton Stevens and Aaron Reutzel as wheel to wheel contact between the two sent the No. 87 off the track in the first and second turns, allowing the No. 99x to take second in his first Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Feature start.

Matt Covington also benefited from the contact to take over the final podium step as Reutzel was shuffled back to fourth. From 10th, Seth Bergman made his way through the field to complete the top-five.
Advancing 12 positions after having to race through the BMRS B-Feature, El Paso's John Carney II was the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night. Skylar Gee crossed seventh with Blake Hahn eighth from the 16th starting spot. Ninth went to Dustin Morgan with Wayne Johnson crossing tenth.

Round three of the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek brought 31 drivers to the Devil's Bowl Speedway with four Heat Race wins going to Aaron Reutzel, Matt Covington, Martin Edwards, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. A single B-Main went to Johnny Herrera. One provisional start was used by Jake Greider.

The 2017 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek and Bob Westphal Memorial Cup continues on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. Hot Laps begin at 7:45 P.M. (CDT).
